Ah, you know what? I waited too long to start writing a post tonight, and now I'm sleepy, so I'll make this quick. Is this an NYT debut for Peter A. Collins? I liked the embedded state names (like RAD[IOWA]VES), and the longer fill, such as MAKE A WISH and MARADONA.

The Sun puzzle by Joel Calahan (another debut?), "Creative Drive," features a tight theme, and seemed easier than most Tuesday Suns.


Did I go temporarily dim, or is Bob Klahn's CrosSynergy puzzle actually much more challenging than the typical Tuesday puzzle?
